December 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CANCELED – Due to weather conditions #misec Lansing meetup is canceled tonight
Join #misec Lansing for a lightning talk on GIS OSINT and a talk on Better Penetration Testing
Lightning Talk: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for OSINT and Infosec
Speaker: Matt McCormick
Talk Title: Prowling: Better Penetration Testing
Speaker: Wolfgang Goerlich
About the talk: “But we passed our penetration test,” the person handling the security breach groaned. “How come they missed this?” Since the late 1960s, penetration testing has been about two things: demonstrating that the system can be broken into and finding some vulnerabilities. But, by now? We all know systems can be broken into. The shock and surprise are gone. And we all know there are vulnerabilities. Scores of vulnerabilities. Too many vulnerabilities. In fact, arguably today’s penetration testing doesn’t even identify a fraction of the vulnerabilities. This session will review the state of testing strategies and present predictions on where penetration testing should go in the future.
Directions: Parking is available on the road just to the south of Baker Hall or in the parking lot to the east of the building. We meet in room 555. Take the elevator in the southeast corner of the building to the fifth floor and turn left. Follow the noise; we’re pretty close to the elevator.
